The Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Friends and Members Room has been officially launched as The Ocean Lounge thanks to generous support from Ocean BMW Plymouth.
The reception room, on the second floor of the Theatre, is used by Friends of the Theatre, Corporate Members and their guests. Ocean BMW has supported the Theatre Royal Plymouth since 1998. As well as The Ocean Lounge, this latest five-year partnership also includes the sponsorship of auditorium door 12.
The valuable support from the business community in terms of corporate memberships, auditorium door and room sponsorships is vitally important to the Theatre’s overall financial wellbeing and ultimately helps bring world class shows to Plymouth, supporting Theatre Royal Plymouth productions and engaging with the local community through Creative Learning projects.
Theatre Royal Plymouth Chief Executive Adrian Vinken OBE said: ‘We are excited by this new partnership which will provide valuable ongoing support for the Theatre Royal Plymouth. As a significant local business, Ocean BMW is keen to support the Theatre and this commitment to corporate social responsibility has undoubtedly been the driving force behind the arrangement.
We also believe that our two organisations share many common brand values particularly with regard to product quality and customer service and this makes our partnership a good natural ‘fit’.’
Ocean Group Managing Director, Graham De Val explains why they wanted to take the company’s support to the next level “As a local owned family business, Ocean are dedicated to supporting institutions such as the Theatre Royal Plymouth. There is a natural synergy between our two brands and I am very proud that our support now includes The Ocean Lounge. The Theatre has done a great job branding the area and I am looking forward to continuing to work with Adrian and his team over the next few years.”
